Spring and Easter Inspiration for Your Decor

While we continue enjoying all the wonderful tablescapes linked for yesterdays Tablescape Thursday, I wanted to share a little spring and Easter decorating my friend, Cornelia has been doing.

Cornelia lives in Switzerland and loves to collect exquisite pieces to decorate with for the seasons and holidays. I love how she used branches to display her collection of beautiful ornaments and Easter decor. Let’s take a closer look…

Cornelia told me these cute bunnies are made of papiermaché and are from Germany.

Aren’t they adorable?

I love this little guy with his basket of colored eggs. :)

Doesn’t this just put you in the mood for a little Easter decorating?!

The glass ornaments are all hand-blown and are from Germany, as well.

Cornelia, thanks so much for sharing your lovely Easter and Spring decor. You can view a beautiful, tablescape Cornelia put together last spring, HERE. I’m off to do a little spring decorating myself.

    Tout simplement adorables ces décorations de Pâques…
    Je vais très souvent en Suisse, j'y allais régulièrement lorsque mon fils vivait là-bas…
    Pour Pâques effectivement j'avais pu remarquer des décorations accrochées aux arbres… C'était sublime.
    Belle publication.
    Gros bisous

  16. Hi Susan,

    Forgive me if I'm late in noticing, but when did you rob the bank? ;) I noticed on your sidebar, under the 'Things To Do' heading that you've stroked that jot off to pay for the hardware flooring.

    Love your new banner! Happy Spring!

    Joan, you didn't read about that in the paper? I'm out on bail, now. Blogging from jail was really hard. ;)

  19. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says:

    Shelia,
    Emily at The Blog Fairy conspired with me to create my header. :)

  29. Cornelia has a nice collection of rabbits, and her egg tree is lovely. Definitely looks like spring! ~ Sarah

  30. Oh Susan, those bunnies were so adorable. The one with the basket of eggs on his back, muah! They all looked like they were going to JUMP off that table and run away. So so cute. Thanks for sharing. And thanks to your friend,too. Susan

  31. Jeanette says:

    I love Corneilia's bunnies. She must wrap them very careful each year so not to damage them. I like that they look sort of antique. Beautiful job!

  32. Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden says:

    Wow, she always has the neatest stuff! I love those rabbits with their baskets on their backs, how cute are those!! I love her curtain fabric too, so spring/summer like!

  33. Oh, my what a beautiful display. I'd love to see how she has the rest of her house decorated. Bet it is beautiful too. Did anybody look through her windows at that house behind her? Thanks for sharing; I look foward to more. Maybe she could give us a whole house tour and share some of her tablescapes.

  34. On Crooked Creek says:

    Susan,
    Yes this post gives me the inspirational nudge I need to begin my Easter decorating…now I just need to look for the time to begin. Lovely post. Thanks for sharing.
    Fondly,
    Pat

  35. Such inspiration and I also eyed all those china cups in her cabinet. Lovely.

  36. Designs By Pinky says:

    This is exactly the motivation I needed, I ahve been wanting to get the BUNNIES out:):). I LOVE the paper mache ones she has! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing this with us, Susan! XO, Pinky

  37. Priscilla says:

    I love this post. It is special because my daughter lived in Switzerland for 5 years. I loved to visit her, there. I especially liked to go in the spring because of the Easter decorations. Christmas following closely behind at #2 favorite.
    Does your friend, Cornelia have a blog?
    I have posted a few pictures of some Easter eggs done in the style of Swiss Scherenschnitte.
